Birthday by the Sea

Hi everyone,
Sorry I've not been around to visit lately. 
I hope to stop by and see what you've all been up to later today
..after I've caught up on all the washing and ironing.
I was in the Grand Bahamas for a week with hubby and our Son, DIL and Granddaughter.
We had a fabulous time...great weather up until the day before we left but that's okay
...we had a day to do a little shopping and take in the local vendors. 

Today I have a card to share with you that I made for my Granddaughter's birthday.
She was so excited to be going on a seaside vacation I made her birthday card to help build on the excitement.

Design Paper is Graphic 45 "By the Sea"collection
I really like the tags that are included in the pack and added a few to the outside.  The metal seashell was from my stash.  Fussy cut the shells and starfish.
MFT Balloon die and MB Grand Happy Birthday die used on the inside.  QuicKutz dies used for the name and number

Before I go...here is a picture of the view from our balcony.  Can't wait to return.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Eureka Stamps #90 - Birthdays

Thank so much for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with a DT card for Fab'n'Funky.

Maggie's one lucky girl to be receiving this card! This is my favorite project (I've seen thus far) using G45's seaside papers. That metal shell is the perfect size and embellishment for your card.

You probably printed out the note on the inside to Maggie using your computer. The inside of the card will make her feel as special as the front of the card. I haven't made any cards up to that high standard yet. I may be taking a page from your playbook. Thank you for sharing this fabulous and summery card.
